PIE 1.0 beta 4 released

CSS3 PIE version 1.0 beta 4 has been released. This is primarily a bugfix release. Major fixes include:

  • Fixed JavaScript error when printing
  • Tweaked detection of IE9 to perform rendering in compatibility and quirks modes but disable rendering in IE9 standards mode
  • Fixed errors in rendering of border-image, images with zero dimensions, and others (thanks to Keith Gable)
  • Prevented multiple downloads of images used more than once in a page
  • Added support for CSS3 color keywords (thanks to Don Retzlaff)
  • Fixed border-width keywords like ‘medium’
  • Corrected positioning in RTL text environments
  • Added a new -pie-poll custom CSS property which allows specifying that PIE should periodically check certain elements for position and size changes. This is useful for situations where IE does not fire onmove and onresize events when it should.

See the full changelog, and download PIE 1.0 beta 4 now.

After this beta 4 release, the priority for development is introducing proper support for missing CSS3 features in IE9, notably linear-gradient and border-image.

    Thank you!

    In addition to linear-gradient and border-image, text-shadow would be awesome for IE9 (or below).

    great feature. im using it for rounded corners, but the gradient feature not working on IE9 is a deal breaker for me for that feature.

    Getting Problem in IE8. I put round corners on navigation. It behavior tag makes its #fff background disappear. I Don’t know what is the issue.. Can you help?

    Loving this – thank you! I’ve possibly found an issue with rounded corners. I cannot get them to activate on list elements. On the list itself and any content element nested inside li’s everything works normally. But with regard to the li’s themselves – no rounded corners appear in IE.

    Thanks for fixing the IE7 print bug! This allowed me to remove a long-standing JS work-around I had.
